Are you looking for some Christmas recipe inspiration? In this list, you will find the 10 best Christmas cookies you can easily bake at home. All of them are yummy, super easy, and quick to make! Give them a try!
For me, Christmas is most frequently associated with the smell of freshly baked cookies. My mother used to bake a lot of cookies during winter. All of them were full of seasonal flavors such as cinnamon, ginger, or nutmeg or filled with dried fruits such as cranberries or plums. This is how my love for Christmas cookies has grown over the years until the point I started creating my own recipes.
In fact, baking sweet Christmas cookies has become such a pleasant activity for me and a way of showing my love for all my friends and family. When winter approaches, I get super eager to bake new and improved recipes and gift them to my loved ones. The smile on their face when they open the box is… incomparable.
Actually, if I come to think about it, gifting homemade sweets or food, in general, has to be the ultimate proof of gratitude or appreciation. At least for me! Offer me freshly baked cookies, a slice of cake, or a fruit tart and I’m yours forever! I’m not even pretentious, I swear, even a piece of takeaway pizza works. After all, love goes through the stomach, right? And if your tummy will be filled with Christmas cookies at the end, I guess you can call it an accomplished mission.
My love for this type of cookies was the main inspiration behind this article. I decided to share with you my best Christmas cookies, combined with some other amazing recipes I could find on Pinterest from some of my favorite food bloggers in the world.
In case you like baking Christmas cookies as much as I do, then you will surely find this list to be useful and inspiring. I included in it 5 of my best Christmas cookies, most of them on the classic side: thumbprint cookies filled with your choice of jam (I chose raspberry, which is my favorite), decadent, chocolate-filled Oreo cookies, cinnamon cookies that are absolutely perfect for the Christmas morning (to be served with a big glass of warm milk), almond and chocolate cookies for a bit of crunch and, of course, gingerbread cookies, which are my absolute favorite.
Making homemade gingerbread for the winter holidays has to be one of the most pleasing and satisfying activities. The smell is simply incredible and it will fill your entire house! Nicely decorated gingerbread cookies made at home make for unique gifts as well, so you can offer them to your friends. Or to your co-workers for Secret Santa, why not?
This being said, I’m sure you’ll find your next favorite cookie recipe below. From tree-shaped cookies to peppermint-sprinkled chocolate goodies, I assure you that you’ll find something to love on my list! The only challenge would be to choose just one…
